Hi :)
I feel like singing something from "Gilbert and Sullivan" (prolly mis-seplt that)  "and is the very 
model of an ..." or the lumberjacks song from Monty Python.  

Luckily voice doesn't carry very well over text-based communications and also luckily i can't 
remember many (or any?) of the words.  

I think it's fairly easy to join the devs but there is some support for noobs, such as the "Easy 
Hacks" page so people can try out a bit of coding first and then get advice from a mentor.  If the 
code is good enough it might be put forwards but it might take a few times before the noobs writes 
code that is really good enough for that.  Once put forwards the wider group is likely to be able 
to have a look and make comments if they feel the need.  Then there are various testing phases 
before the coding gets into the main branch and if the coding makes it through all that then there 
are various stages of alpha and then beta testing.  

So the question is less about what are the requirements of the person and more about what are the 
requirements for the quality of the code they write.  

Anyone can become an LO dev but only the truly heroic can get their coding into common usage.

       What are the requirements to become an LO developer?

       I don't know about LO, but with R (, anyone can 
contribute a package to enhance the basic language.  If you want to 
change a feature of the core language, you need to work with the core 
developers, convince at least one of them that your proposed change 
would be an enhancement, and that it's worth that person's time to 
implement it.  The latter can be facilitated by providing working code 
that passes all the standard checks.
